I own the HS50. Also, a Canon SX50, a Sony HX300, and a Panasonic FZ60 which I use with a TCON17. My advice to you would be look at any FZ70 long end samples you may find very carefully. I love my HS50 but it has one shortcoming. It's just not very good beyond 700mm. Everything else about the camera I absolutely love except this. I even tried 2 other HS50's at long zoom to see if I had a bad copy. The SX50 at full zoom takes noticeably sharper images. If the FZ70 can compare favorably with the SX50 at full zoom then it may be better suited for your needs.

This mirrors my experience as well. I sure like the manual zoom but the long end image quality just wasn't there. I sold my Fuji after a couple months and a niece now has my Canon thus I'm just shooting the FZ200 now. If the new Canon materializes and is sweet I'll get one. If not I'll probably pick up an FZ70
